His grant of arms was recorded at the Lyon Court in 1979 and contains a pun on his name: "Or, on a rocky mount with verdure its base in the form of an "S" the convex part to the Dexter and the concave part to the sinister all proper" The boars' heads in chief are a reference to the Gordons of Aberdeenshire of which the Esslemonts were a sept. The arms area strikingly modern example of punning while the chief and crest reflect the Scottish antecedents of the grantee. Mrs Ann Esslemont bears the arms on a cartouche.
